Have you seen new witch Eden Espinosa yet? Well this is it. This’ll be your last chance to see the defining musical of the past decade.

WILL PLAY ITS LAST PERFORMANCE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2010. TICKETS NOW ON SALE FOR ALL PERFORMANCES THROUGH END OF ENGAGEMENT
SAN FRANCISCO… The San Francisco production of the smash hit musical WICKED will play its final performance on Sunday, September 5, 2010, ending its record-breaking run at the Orpheum Theatre. Tickets are now on sale for all performances through September 5th. Upon closing, WICKED will have played 660 performances and 12 previews.
WICKED, “the San Francisco-born musical that has conquered the world” (San Francisco Chronicle) , and which was recently called “the defining musical of the decade” by The New York Times, has already amassed over $1.8 billion globally in ticket sales and has been seen by over 23 million people worldwide. The show’s enormous popularity was instantly apparent in San Francisco-immediately after it opened, WICKED broke the one-week San Francisco box office record with gross ticket sales of $1,459,610.50 surpassing the record previously held by The Phantom of the Opera. Over one million patrons have seen WICKED in San Francisco, and to date the production has grossed over $75 million.
More deets, after the jump.
